Huh.

I thought Wendy O Williams died years ago.

Kat said...

Damn.

I want to fuck them both.

Seems like it could have been called, "The Girl Who ALSO Has a Dragon Tattoo".

Hopefully this will be like "Let Me In" was to "Let the Right One In", and won't be an English remake of a foreign film that utterly destroys the original like "The Vanishing" among others.

The idea that that's innocent little Erica Albright from The Social Network is just -- well, dear god is that hot.

LzyMom said...

Oh man, I loved the original films. Please please please don't fuck them up!

I soooooooo want to Twit her a pic of my Rep. Wiener.

I don't completely understand these remakes. Are they set in Sweden still and just in English or did they make them set in the US?

If they set them in the States, a major plot thread won't really make too much sense at least as far as I see it.

Also, I'll be really surprised if they're as intense as the originals were. Those were some fucked up movies. Really good, but really disturbing in a lot of parts. I actually found myself nauseated a few times watching them.

As far as I know, they're still set overseas. The difference is that they're in English. If it were anyone but Fincher directing, I'd be worried -- but as it is I freaking can't wait.

Agent Scully said...

What a terrible poster. Sure, let's take a character from the book who was terrorized by her legal guardian, then raped by that same person and sexualize her, and let her stand naked on the poster. Yeah, that makes total sense. Boobies!

Just this once it would have been nice to see a strong female lead portrayed as the bad ass she is. But no, Hollywood can't handle that. Goddamn morons.

Chez said...

Sorry, can't back you on this one (and it's not just because I happen to like Rooney Mara topless, regardless of the context). Sexuality and strength aren't necessarily mutually exclusive concepts.

Given the context of the movie, I find this otherwise beautiful photo decidedly offensive. Assholes.

J. Dack said...

Geh. I get that they want to remake (the awesome) films in English because Americans hate subtitles and the brand is hot right now so it'll be a cash machine, but I really preferred the look of the original.

This chick's eyebrows are missing, it's like something out of a Manson video.

Ref said...

Indubitably, I reiterate "She's no Noomi!"

A topless photo of a character, who never allowed herself to be victimized by her rape, let alone the the endless injustices heaped upon her throughout her entire life, offends you?
That says more about you than the marketing department. Why do you only see a rape victim as just that, and not a true person. To take away every other facet of a person and focus solely on one specific trauma, is virtually victimizing them again.

This is the same character who might be one of the strongest females ever conjured. Salander was strong, and her sexuality was a large part of not only her personality, but of her strength.
This poster is the exact kind of thing she would condone.

And specifically to agent scully, how does this poster take any strength from her? Id truly like to know your thought process of boiling such a complex person down to just being a victim. To me, this is not a sexualized image. Its blunt. Its harsh. Its sly. And its kind of cold and off putting.
Kind of like the character its portraying.
Imagine that.

Yeah, there are tits on this poster. But I don't see 'sexualized' with this image. Not with their facial expressions. It's badass. It's hot. And I'll take Daniel Craig's arm over my tits any day. And, well, Rooney Mara's arm over my tits any day as well.
